  • Building Energy Modeling 101: HVAC Design and Operation Use Case

    A great deal of energy use in buildings goes toward heating, ventilation, and air-conditioning (HVAC). In 2015, HVAC consumed 15.5 quads. The first step in reducing HVAC energy use is reducing heating and cooling load—i.e., the amount of heat that needs to be added to or removed from a building—typically by reducing heat from equipment and lighting; minimizing unnecessary ...

  • How a Specialized Automatic Control Valve Solved Flooding

    The Colombian area of Antioquia creates much of its clean power from hydropower plants along the Guadalupe River. The Guadalupe IV hydroelectric plant generates power with three vertical axis turbines that discharge water below the river level. To prevent flooding, however, the plant needed a solution that ensured the ejector ...

  • Equipment purchasing and leasing

    PURCHASING (or leasing) equipment for use in manufacturing compost (and/or soil products) can be one of the riskiest decisions compost managers must make. The obvious risks of equipment acquisition (i.e. paying too much, higher than expected operating costs, not having the cash flow to cover payments, etc.) are augmented by risks such as machines not able to keep up with the increased materials ...

  • Bed Level Measurement

    Numerous studies and papers have been devoted to the subject of thickener design and operation to achieve specified throughput and discharge densities. Mathematical models have been developed that present methods for sizing thickeners and predicting performance under varying process conditions. The compression effect of deeper beds on dewatering performance is a recognized phenomenon. This is one ...

  • Non-contacting Ultrasonic Pumping Station Flow Measurement Saves Money for Dwr Cymru Welsh Water

    Dwr Cymru Welsh Water has benefitted from the unique 'Pumped Volume' feature built into Pulsar's Quantum 2 Pump Station Controller; identifying a flow problem within a pumping station network without the need for expensive Magflow meters. Once the issue was resolved, pumped volume through one of the stations was reduced by 88% , ...

  • Wastewater engineers go with the flow

    The efficiency of maintenance work has been improved by water treatment engineers employing Intellisonde monitors in their final effluent. Designed primarily to measure water quality, the Intellisondes also measure flow, and this reading is being used to detect the accumulation of debris that necessitates a maintenance visit. Wastewater treatment efficiency is often measured by the analysis of ...

  • Discharge Measurements In Low Flow Conditions With ADC p t echnology – First Experiences In Nepal

    Low flows prevail during about nine months of the year in Himalayan rivers as a result of the influence of the monsoon climate. They account for a large portion of the annual water balance and accurate information about these flows is therefore critical for water resources planning, development, management and hydropower design. Issues that occur with the neighbouring country India are often ...

  • Online discharge measurement with OTT SLD

    Background For the economic management of the waterways between Elbe and Oder it is essential to know the discharge of these rivers at defined locks. The authority for water and navigation (WSA) in Lauenburg operates hydrological stations for the measurement of water level and discharge to effectively regulate the water flow at the locks in Plau and Malliß ...

  • Online measurement with OTT SLD and LogoSens2

    Background The drill called „Wallensteingraben“ connects the Lake of Schwerin with the Hanseatic city Wismar, ending in the Baltic Sea. The Wallensteingraben was originally constructed as channel and is almost 20 km long. In the context of implementing the European Water Framework Directive its ecological passability shall be improved. At the measurement site „Rothentor“ a weir system ...

  • Why Water Scale is Dangerous for Equipment

    Mineral scale occurs wherever circulating water exists, and it forms very fast (generally less than 3 weeks). Even a very thin layer, it will also cause insulation, make equipment inefficient, increase cost, and in some serious cases, it will shut down the whole system and even cause explosion. These problems have already existed in different fields, and are becoming worse and worse. ...

  • Surfactant-induced unsaturated flow: Instrumented horizontal flow experiment and hysteretic modeling

    Organic compounds with surface-active properties reduce the surface tension of water and can change soil water contact angles depending on their aqueous concentration. The presence of such compounds in the unsaturated zone affects soil moisture characteristics and unsaturated hydraulic conductivity relations, and can cause flow as a result of induced soil water pressure gradients. Some studies ...

  • Fearless flow back - treating completion fluids & acid flow backs

    An oil company completed a well and CETCO Oilfield Services was there to treat the flow back fluids.
